camarothatcould DEEZUZ , any chance the phone was dropped hard enough to hurt the internal antenna?

The g/f’s phone went from having excellent coverage to absolute shit in the matter of a day. Turns out one of the kids she watches knocked the phone off of a counter on to a tile floor. Damaged the antenna. She would have like 1 bar along major highways where I had full strength.

Hmm. This possible...

I think I want to do a 5g phone with new service and start fresh

So I've had Verizon for 2-3 months now.

it sucks.

Randomly driving through towns and cities it drops out.. Like in major metro areas... 1 bar... It gone...

When wifi is on, say at work.. Text messages won't send and I won't get calls. Just voicemail...


Do I upgrade to a 5g plan and 5g phone with Verizon or do I just go to another carrier?

I'm half tempted to just go back to att for a prepaid plan but they are such fucking pieces of shit if I ever had another issue with them I'd be really pissed
The worst one i ever had. Never ever again!

In theory, if it has a sim slot, it would basically turn the tablet into your phone and use that data plan.
My thoughts as well. I just didn't know if today's Sims are like locked to certain phones/devices.

Bae would be looking to insert her phone sim to a tablet every so often to receive certain updates from the carrier(att)

There are multiple sim types, that's the only thing you'll have to look out for. The last one is E-Sim. Some phones have this if they don't have a sim slot.

Probably have to watch out if your phone/tablet are mismatched (one nano, one micro for example)

I sware I'm such a boomer sometimes but I Google and Google can't find the fucking answer.

I want to change my text notification. I can't find the option... It only gives me the option for each individual person....

I changed my notification and only like email and alerts are that sound... Not my messages...

Using Google messages also.

Any android users use endoscopes? I'm in the market for an endoscope to use with my z fold 5 since my old one is.... Well old.
I actually just got an aliexpress endoscope.. for $4 its not bad and has worked with any endoscope app. The problem is finding an app that isnt chock full of ads.

it worked for checking out inside of a cylinder through the spark plug hole.

Almost looks like the one I currently have except I can't seem to find an app that works. What app are you using?
